Just wanted to wish everyone good luck at the meet today. Pretty bummed I can't be there. As some of you know I got pretty sick again this fall and had to take a disability retirement. (God is so good-I've been able to work for so long with this heart condition I was born with. I couldn't qualify for disability retirement until I was 55. Even though the disability pay is a little less than 50% of my salary at least it gives my family something and my wife will collect it for as long as she lives after I pass.) I started feeling better a couple of months ago and was able to start lifting in hopes of being at the CO State meet. Things were going well until about 2 1/2 weeks ago when the "wheels fell off". I started having all kinds of arythmias, got really weak and haven't been able to lift at all. I've lost 15 pounds and feel about as strong as a 3 year old. So they are scheduling another surgery (number 15 if your counting) and hopefully I'll be at the next CO meet. Miss you all-lift strong and be safe!
